Today's #flashfiction Gliding Stars

 “Can you hear me now?”

If you ever have absolutely nothing to do, read the newspaper upside down. When you try this waste of time long enough you'll realize that you do actually have something worth doing. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

Gliding Stars

       There are falling stars, and there are rising stars, but rarely do people discuss gliding stars. Gliding stars are not the dramatic, shining celebrities of humanity that rising stars are. Nor are they the beautiful gleams of light across the sky that are falling stars. Gliding stars are the steady lights that roam the ground. They are important, but are incredibly bland merely in their regularity.

       They are the lights on people's cars, front and back. They glide along the road with us and are often unappreciated. Though if you're every on an airplane and look down on a large city with thousands upon thousands of cars in it, you'll easily see how their lights are much like those of the sky and easily make constellations of their own.
